John E. Davis will speak on the topic "Conducting Effective FCPA Compliance Assessments."

Risk assessment is the starting point for determining the incentives and opportunities that could lead to an FCPA violation, and the appropriate responses. Participants in this interactive workshop will examine practical steps for designing an effective process to assess the risks presented in the internal and external environments in which the company operates. With emphasis on the key operational risks presented by international business representatives, participants will then consider how to move from assessment to response.
